Hannah Swapping Movies For Animals
DARYL HANNAH is taking a step back from acting to look after animals.
The Splash star has a menagerie of rescued pets at her solar-powered farm - and she'd prefer to spend time with her animals than on a movie set.
She says, "I have three alpacas, chickens, a few roosters... There's a lot of wildlife near me but that's great because I can see elk and owls and hawks. I'm pretty hands on (with the animals).
"Some of my animals are from shelters, or I hear that someone's going to put some animals down. Usually I try to give them away but the ones I can't give away are the ones I get stuck with.
"I've been acting since I was 11 years old and it's an incredibly wonderful and beautiful creative outlet and I think it can be an inspiring thing for people's imaginations and a wonderful escape. I still love movies and I always will but, as I grow up, my priorities shift a little bit to things of a little more substance and I want to be of service as much as I can."
